If the superdeluxe was really as cheap as it always (erroneously) shows up as (on eBay, etc), they might have shifted the whole 500 copies in the last six and a half years!

Amazing to still see it is available. They must only sell a handful per year.

That said, it is still a book I really like - I just wish I didn't have three copies :)

Spotted this yesterday, what a horror! I've seen people on Facebook discussing this monstrosity too. My biggest complaint is the very unprofessional binding attempt (lumpy, not labeled well) but the condition of the innards doesn't entice me either.

eBay Item #261381347943



I can see what they were trying to achieve - the lumps are the internal structure of the Hobbit Hole. Sadly, it all doesn't work very well.

Looking for a copy of The Book People 2012 collectors edition with dust-wrapper. Only recently found out this existed thanks to An Illustrated Tolkien Bibliography . UK collector.



Hi Jeff, This one seems to come up on eBay UK quite regularly (and cheaply). Just keep your eyes out -- I paid about 2 pounds for mine, if I remember rightly. There seem to have been plenty of copies printed.
